SAMENVATTING
Downy mildews cause severe diseases and losses on many vegetable and field crops, e.g. lettuce and spinach. The speed at which new downy mildew races emerge and break resistance makes it that new strategies for crop protection are desperately needed. This project is focusing on downy mildew-associated microbes that help the pathogen to infect host plants. It is expected to provide new strategies for both resistance breeding as well as other methods to block helper microbes and thereby reduce disease. The overall aim of this project is to identify and functionally analyze pathogen-helper microbes and to use this knowledge to improve crop resistance to downy mildew by blocking these microbes.
